Top Hotels in Panama City

Never fear, dear traveler, because we have accommodations that will suit all your needs during your vacation in Panama City.

  • Legacy by the Sea: Legacy by the Sea not only offers sweeping views of the Gulf, but the hotel is also a three-minute walk away from Gulf World Marine Park. When you’re not marveling at marine life, relax in the hotel’s heated pool or work on your fitness at the on-site gym.
  • Beachside Resort: Offering a variety of rooms ranging from basic queen beds to suites with full kitchens, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for at Beachside Resort. Wake up each morning and go for a stroll on the white sand beach directly outside the hotel, then retreat to the beachfront hot tub and poolside bar for vacationing at its finest.
  • Origin At Seahaven: Traveling with the whole family or just craving space to fully unwind? Origin at Seahaven is not your standard hotel, as the property boasts luxury condominiums to make your time in Florida as homey as possible. From basic studios to full-sized one-bedroom suites, Origin at Seahaven might just become your coastal home away from home.
  • Holiday Inn Express & Suites Panama City Beach: When you tire of bodysurfing and seashell hunting, head to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites and let yourself get carried away in the pool’s lazy river. With entertaining activities for people of all ages, this property is one you’ll remember even after you’ve gotten home from vacation.

Major Attractions

First things first, you need to go to Panama City beach and stretch out on the 27 miles of sand overlooking the Gulf. There are ample places to kayak, fish, or even take a boat out to scuba dive in the cerulean waters. Looking for a patch of sand a little off the beaten path? Then make the beach within St. Andrews State Park the initial stop on your Panama City getaway. There, you’ll be treated to pristine views of white sand and dark green waters. Shallow waters and high visibility make St. Andrews the ideal place in Panama City for snorkeling.

When you need to dry out, head to the Man in the Sea Museum. This quirky and innovative venue showcases exhibits on the history of diving. From vintage scuba suits to old school submarines, you’ll happily spend hours above ground dreaming of life under the sea. For a peek into Panama City’s social side, head to Pier Park, the city’s premier shopping and dining outlet. Located alongside the beach, you’ll find your favorite stores and a plethora of delicious local restaurants.

Festivals and Events

Taking a Panama City vacation? Visit the Gulf coast during February or March so you can partake in the Mardi Gras and Music Festival. Held annually the weekend before fat Tuesday, the event combines the best of Mardi Gras with the stunning scenery of Panama City.
